After an extended break, Fraser & Fraser are delighted to be back with their latest in our series of interactive free of charge webinars for Empty Homes Officers.
At 12:30 on Thursday 21st October, we’ll be looking at GDPR for Empty Homes Officers.
Nick Beetham of Fraser and Fraser will be in conversation with Vicki Bowles, barrister and Data Protection Partner in VWV Solicitors in Bristol. Vicki has extensive experience in advising schools, charities, businesses and public authorities on data protection and freedom of information. Her knowledge of the information commissioner and information tribunal mean that she is able to advise both strategically as well as practically, and she can help with general compliance (such as policies and agreements) as well as specific questions around subject access and other individual rights.
Lorraine Moore, EHO at Fenland District Council has also kindly agreed to participate and share her experience of successfully navigating Fenland’s procedures in order to ensure compliance with IG policy and completion of a DPIA (data protection impact assessment). Lorraine will speak to us following her experience and has kindly agreed to share the toolkit she created to help other EHOs through the process at their Councils. Since starting her role in November 2019 Lorraine has been on a steep learning curve, managing a large caseload for a small rural district. During the course of her work she has been trying to find cost effective solutions to support her in bringing empty homes back into use as her role is intrinsically connected to the EH bonus.
